Maori over the past few years have decided to celebrate Punga/Matariki (Orion/Pleidaes constellation). The North American Indians were the people that were connected to this star constellation, also the Celtic people. Maori are claiming that they navigated by these stars.
Maori never navigated here, they were brought here as slaves, males only, no women, by Admiral Zheng. He was a Chinese pirate/trader who abandoned them on the shore. How could slaves ever know anything about navigation? This was taught to them from the people that were living here while at the same time teaching them their culture, that they are using today, part of which is star navigation.
